Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach first grade at a small primary school. My students often struggle in math and reading so I am always looking for new strategies or materials to provide learning experiences that strengthen those weak, but very important, areas. My students love to listen to, interact with, and respond to children's books. I want to add copies of Stuart J. Murphy's Math Start books to my classroom library so that I can capitalize on this enjoyment to engage my students during math lessons. These high-interest books would allow me to integrate math and language arts while adhering to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. Each story includes activities to deepen and extend student learning while allowing the children to see the real-life applications of the math concepts we are studying. Please help me help first-graders develop a love of math and reading for years to come.
